In 2011 the overall Box Office was down 3.5 percent compared to 2010. However with movies like The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Hobbit, and yes, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 2) due out in 2012, I have a feeling that is not going to be the case again. I have a feeling that this is going to be a year where we will see several Box Office records broken.
Part of the reason for the probable success is that these movies will be nicely spaced out throughout the year. Summer isn’t the only place for blockbusters anymore with Breaking Dawn 2 and The Hobbit both coming out around the holidays next year.
It is easy to get excited about the big releases in any given year, thanks in large part to the massive marketing campaigns that begin months early. Not everybody has heard about the next great foreign film or independent comedy that is on the horizon, but everybody knows what Christopher Nolan or Peter Jackson have been up to. That is why this week’s poll concerns only those big films.
